Very good! I doubled the recipe. This is an easy dish to prepare. The whole family enjoyed the meal. Thank you for the recipe. Made for Every Day is a Holiday tag.
This was great! We just loved it. I used regular penne instead of multigrain but other than that stuck to the recipe and it was perfect. Thanks, wicked! Made for Holiday tag.
